‘Scientists at a company called Impossible Foods say they’ve managed to mimic the particular mouthfeel of meat by using bioengineered plant “blood,” reports the Wall Street Journal. It reportedly even tastes slightly metallic like real blood.

Upon radioing updated targeting coordinates to the artillery, Lt. Fox was informed of a problem: the artillery fire would hit him as well.

(The delay was likely due to his race; as explained by his Wikipedia entry, many African-American soldiers who should have earned the honor were overlooked otherwise inexplicably.) And in 2005, Lt.
